All square at the Bentegodi

Verona – Napoli extended their run of 12 games without a defeat in the league on Sunday afternoon, but had to settle for a goal-less draw away at Chievo. Taking into account the tail end of the previous campaign, the draw takes the Partenopei’s unbeaten run to 24 games, the longest in the club’s history.

Below grey skies at the Bentegodi, Chievo and Napoli did battle on a difficult pitch, with the away side dominating much of the game. The Azzurri went close on numerous occasions in the first period.

Lorenzo Insigne teed up Marek Hamsik just outside the box early on, but he spooned his side-footed effort over the bar. Around the 15-minute mark, Piotr Zielinski launched a fierce effort at goal, however Stefano Sorrentino was well-positioned to catch.

The Chievo keeper was then tested twice in quick succession, once by Insigne who cut inside from the right to curl a shot towards goal, before Hamsik failed to connect fully with an acrobatic volley.

Jose Callejon went closest to opening the scoring, after Insigne, Mertens and Hamsik linked up delightfully. The Spaniard’s diagonal shot was just inches away from the post.

Goalscoring opportunities were fewer and farther between in the second period, though Napoli continued to dominate possession. The away team could settle for a point and revel in an unbeaten streak that extends nine months.

After the international break, Napoli welcome Milan to the San Paolo.
